As the letter put it
"The administration shares your belief that the current lack of a college football national championship playoff with respect to the highest division of college football ... raises important questions affecting millions of fans, colleges and universities, players and other interested parties"
It remains to be seen if this is florific language designed to keep the good Senator off the administration's back or an indication that the DOJ will go looking and get involved.
It doesn't bode well, if you are anti-playoff, that the administration is asking the FTC to look into potential consumer protection issues. If I were the American League, I'd be nervous, I mean with the designated hitter and all. Unpure baseball, if ask me. I've been harmed many times as a consumer due to the American League's advantage in the All Star Game and World Series. I demand change I can believe in.
I am sure we'll see and hear more about this in the future, but it does bear asking: Is the current manner of selecting an NCAA field for basketball discriminatory? Hey, 20-9 in the WAC certainly isn't considered the same as a 20-9 record in the Big East. Doesn't that go against the "basic fairness that every family tries to instill in their children from the day they are born"? Or does it only matter that more than two teams get to play for a National Championship?
